Notables by Jagjit Singh:
Koi Yeh Kaise Bataye, Too Nahin To Zindagi Mein Aur Kya Reha Jayega, Yun Zindagi Ki Raah Mein, Jhuki Jhuki Si Nazar, Tum Itna Jo Muskura Rahe Ho, Pyar Mujh Se Jo Kiya Tumne, Yeh Tera Ghar Yeh Mera Ghar, Tum Ko Dekha To Yeh Khayal Aaya, Yeh Bata De Mujhe Zindagi.
RIP, Jagjit Singh.
